I had a terrible experience the other day that I go back and forth about sharing it with you. I saw a horrible movie. Horrible. I knew better when I walked in, but a friend asked me to see it with him, so I did.
The movie was extremely depressing, and I can’t pull myself out of it. I can’t stand watching movies about the atrocities that humankind does to humankind and this movie has a total political spin on it. OMG. Aren’t you getting sick of all the bickering between the political parties? Fake News. Propaganda. What’s the truth anymore?
Over the last few days I’ve been praying for help to release this negativity and depression because that’s what I came away with. This feeling of hopelessness and despair. Then today I woke up mad at Hollywood. Why do they keep making these movies? Why is everything violence, death, hate? How did we get here?
So once again, I’m here to remind you that there is goodness in the world. That there is light at the end of the tunnel – which is an interesting expression if you think about it, because the light at the end of the tunnel is usually the other side. (a wink and a smile.)
The only good that came out of that movie for me is to double down on being a positive light in the world. If you are a sensitive person like myself, please do not see the movie Death of a Nation. It literally breaks your heart.
It’s times like these that make it hard to find the Christ within everyone, but it is something to strive for and I for one needed that reminder today. We didn’t come to Earth to have it easy. We came here to grow, and that’s hopefully what we’re doing. We’re either stuck or growing. As a good friend of mine has said to me numerous times, thank the challenges for giving us the opportunity to grow.
